The Prince Edward Viaduct (also known as the Bloor Viaduct) is a half-kilometer bridge in Toronto spanning the Don Valley. In 2003 the Luminous Veil was installed as a suicide prevention measure. Part of the Luminous Veil's architect Dereck Revington original plan voe the Veil involved a lighting installation, but costs prevented that vision from becoming a reality.

In 2015, the idea of the Veil as a lighting installation was been revived, and we have the good fortune to be working on it. For this installation, we worked closely with architect Dereck Revington and Studio F Minus to develop software to control the 3600+ lighting fixtures installed across the length of the bridge. The software takes inputs from a weather station, and controls the lights based on a fluid simulation.
